Substantial time may also be devoted to the growth of commercial law in the areas of credit cards, automated banking, debit cards, and the new rules for electronic transfers, as well as the fundamental con¬cepts of negotiability under Article Seven. Students may not take both this course and the general Commercial Law course nor the new Commercial Law: Secured Transactions and Payment Systems course.
